In the darkness
And the light
You’ve been
My real life hero
My love
My knight

Who despite
Your very own battles
Took up
My plight

When blind
With fear
Give me sight

And always
Never fail
Work to make
It right.

A lesson
That love
Isn’t the shiny things
Or always bright

But the simple act
Of wiping my tears
In the horrors
Of night

Holding my hand
When nobody would

Taking my pain in
And again
And again

Never letting
Me accept
Really old shame

Seeing me beautiful
At my very worst
And knowing
Without any words
To hold me first

That, my soulmate
Is what love is
Which of course
You already knew
